Lake Wausau is close to home with some interesting places to see and some accesses to rivers like the Wisconsin, Big Rib and Eau Claire. So I started here. Lake Wausau is formed by the Wisconsin River meeting the Wausau dam, located close to the city center. Interestingly, one section of the river was left open as it rolls over some good rock formations and there is quite a bit of white water kayaking there, a great training area.
Having served in the USAF with the Navy, I call this a view of me headed out to the BOA, or Broad Ocean Area! In the center is Big Mosinee Mountain. I had a little chop, which was fun for a rookie.
I call this my summer cottage. She’s on Lake Wausau with a nice place to berth.
And my cottage is in a nice neighborhood, which I find uplifting.

Plain old marsh grass looks so different from a kayak.
Can’t explain it, but sitting in the old kayak one notices and takes pleasure in things that are normally just ho-hum.
As I am a rookie at this point, I had a hard time positioning myself to get even this shot of the wonderful Yellow Water Lilies. Next tie I’ll get in there an shoot some close-ups.
